Yesterday, Pangu team brought us iOS 9.1 untethered jailbreak, which is also the first time to jailbreak iPad Pro. In addition, today the Pangu also brought a good news on Twitter for Apple TV users, they will release a usable jailbreak for Apple TV’s tvOS 9.0 or 9.0.1 next week, the last time that we saw a jailbreak for Apple TV was around three years ago.
Should be noted that this Apple TV 4 jailbreak will only provide SSH access, no interface, it mainly for jailbreak developers and security researchers. That is, the jailbreak can still bring new changes to Apple TV. For example, jailbreak developers to provide users with Apple TV themes.
We will release jb for Apple TV4(9.0.x) next week which only has SSH access. It's mainly for security researchers and jailbreak developers.

If your device has been upgraded to tvOS 9.1 or 9.1.1, then you will miss the jailbreak, because the Pangu jailbreak only supports the Apple TV running on tvOS 9.0 or 9.0.1, moreoveryou can no longer downgrade the firmware to an older version . If you are not clear with the Apple TV 4 firmware, you can check it by view the General option in Settings app. Although the jailbreak on Apple TV not mature enough compared to iOS, but it still has great significance for tvOS in the future.
